Deconstructing knowledge and reconstructing understanding: designing a knowledge architecture for transdisciplinary co-creation of energy futures

This article proposes a knowledge making research agenda for co-creation of sustainable energy transitions and proposes the deconstruction-reconstruction knowledge making framework for social learning among stakeholders.

The theoretical framework is operationalized through the knowledge architecture designed to facilitate a multi-stakeholder sustainable energy transition project underway in Sierra Leone. Analysis of the results indicate that an embedded knowledge architecture can lower epistemological and methodological barriers to co-creation and enhance adaptive management of emergent knowledge and conflicts.
